    I have in my unplayed collection: Rome Total War + Alexander expansion, Medieval Total War Gold Edition (Viking expansion) and Medieval II Total War Gold edition (Kingdoms expansion). What is the best order to play them in? Is Medieval Total War worth playing as I have Medieval II?

    I haven't really played strategy games before being mainly a fan of FPS (CODx, HL, Crysis, Bioshock, Doom, Quake etc).

    I personally would start with Rome and work my way up. (Simply because this is where the whole thing turned 3d proper). The original medieval looks a bit fugly now and anything the original did has been improved upon by the sequel.

    Be prepared to be patient with it as there's a bit of a learning curve. I jumped in with next to no strategy experience and thought the games sucked until I started to look at the whole thing tactically and started to plan ahead.

    Any ideas where to find information about getting to grips Rome ? I've had it a couple of years and only played it briefly for an hour and got hammered :D I'm not one for reading game manuals so any general advice on the web would be appreciated.
